Well, if you ever doubted that veganism really works, then here is a powerful testimony for you. How old do you think the lady in the image is? She is one lady who loves to share her age with the world and also how she manages to look so young at her age. Her name is Mimi Kirk and she is 73. She leads a vegan lifestyle and has been awarded the title of 'Sexiest Vegetarian over 50' by PETA.
Modernization has definitely changed the way we cook, grow, preserve and eat. If we go by the ancient Ayurvedic ways of cooking and eating, we find that there is a lot of emphasis on eating fresh fruits and vegetables. Frozen and canned foods are a definite no-no. Moreover, there is different level of nutrition that is retained through different modes of cooking. Fruits and vegetables are best consumed raw. Steaming and boiling come next while microwaving comes last when it comes to nutrients retention.
If you are a vegan or plan to be one, eating raw is definitely a positive habit that can be developed. Salads with fresh raw fruits and vegetables are best for good health and longevity. Mimi says "I accredit this youthful look and spirit not only to my attitude, but really to my way of eating which is a raw vegan – living foods lifestyle."
She has an interestring website called youngonrawfood.com that features raw vegan recipes and more. She has also written a book titled "Live Raw".
Going vegan is definitely a way to reduce risk of many health conditions. Going raw takes you one step ahead and it protects you from the excess oil and fat that comes with cooked food and the loss of nutrition while cooking.
Let us try to incorporate at least one raw meal a week to start with.
